Veterinary Technician/Assistant Externship Program
Orange Grove Animal Hospital has a long standing, hands on learning program for students of our local veterinary technology and veterinary assistant programs. We accept externs from Pima Community College and Pima Medical Institute’s Veterinary Technician programs and from multiple veterinary assistant programs. Colleges other than PCC and PMI are accepted on a case by case basis and resumes must be submitted with complete documentation from your program regarding preceptorships and clinic agreements. Students will be given opportunities to perfect their veterinary nursing skills in areas such as radiology, laboratory, surgery and small animal and exotic nursing. Overseen by our Lead Technician and Veterinarians, students are expected to display a high level of self-initiative and demonstrate capability in the skills covered during class work.
